The wind was howling on the stretch between Bredasdorp and Struisbaai and the bike did surprisingly well in the crosswind.

Do they ever switch the wind off on that stretch?!!!! ;) ;D :lol8:
Congrats hope you have many safe travels. :thumleft:

Net as ek nie ry nie... :imaposer:
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can

Enjoy the CRF300L
I still love my CRF250L after 4 months and 2500km so I can only imagine what a blast the 300L must be.  :thumleft:

I love this little bike.  :ricky:

The kilometers are piling up slowly and the bike is booked for its 1000km service.

I went for a ride yesterday and did some nice Overberg gravel. Some impressions so far:
The good:
Nippy and light.
Decent straight-line performance.
Fuel consumption still shows 31km/l.
Goes where you point it.
FUN!

The bad:
I need to either lose weight or fit a proper spring at the back. The rear does not like corrugations and lose traction.
That ABS switch that resets.
The 'in the way' speedo cable.
If the fuel tank could hold 10 liters it would have been awesome.

The first three gear rations are nicely spaced but I find myself changing between 2nd and 3rd a lot for rough bits - I think that is mostly due to the fact that I do not want to lug it in 3rd too much for the run in period.
I need to get some risers as the bars are a bit low when standing, as well as some handguards. Going to leave the standard handlebar for now, although a nice metallic red number would look awesome. I know you can't fit any handguards to the standard bars - any pointers?
